9:14 am
welcome back 9:13 a.m. according to the aarp one in four adults in the u.s. is currently caring for an adult family member or friend who suffers with chronic conditions the agency just released a new report that said the economic value of this unpaid care reached estimated $450 billion. joining us now to explain is amy goyer family expert thanks for coming in. >> my pleasure. >> before we get to numbers which are staggers we talk about unpaid care and family caregivers let us know what we are talking ability. >> family -- about here. >> family caregivers the new normal, a highly complex health care giving that these people are doing. everything from tube feeding, to simple things like helping an older adult get in and out of bed managing medications my mom just got out of 40 days in hospital i had a list of 18 medications she was on that is
9:15 am
for me to manage not her. >> again, these are family members, daughter, cousin, nephew what have you not someone who has medical expertise. >> exactly right. so we need more training and preparation and often times we don't have that kind of training and preparation we are thrown into those things now if we were not providing that kind of care we would see people back in a hospital in a nursing facility. >> is part of it because things have shifted with the cost of health care and insurance companies keeping the cost down hospital stays have decreased considerably in most instances. a 40 day stay is unusual now frequently people are in for a couple days and out and then a lot of it falls on the family member. >> right for her that was several short stays back to back and that is the thing quicker and sicker hospitals are releasing people and you know there are positive reasons for that people can get sick in the hospital the longer they
9:16 am
are there, infections and things but, when family members are home, often they do recover better because they are happy to be home but we need to provide the care for them they need or they will end up back in the hospital. >> this $450 billion figure is a lot of money can you put that in perspective for us? >> if you look at the annual sales for top companies wal- mart is about the amount of money wal-mart makes every year or if you look at the top three car companies combined, toyota, ford, daimler all together their sales are about that much money it is a huge huge contribution. >> and it has gone up considerably this is based on 2009 events and it went up considerably from just what it was two years before. >> right 2007, $375 billion. >> right. >> so we see an increase in hours number of people being cared for but we see an increase in costover this kind
9:17 am
of care if we -- cost of this kind of care if we were to pay for that care that is the amount it would come to based on $11 an hour and that is a conservative estimate. >> mm-hmm. let's talk a little bit about what people can do, first of all, it seems to me with the number of baby boomers getting older this is likely to get worse before better. >> we have a lot of baby boomers they had fewer children than the generation before them, in the future will we have enough caregivers a shortage of workers will the family caregivers be able to handle things we really need the look at that into the future and be prepared for it. >> what does aarp suggest that some of the approaches are that we do to help make this a better situation in terms of support for the caregivers. >> well, we need to really have this preparation and training and not just throw people to the wolves when it comes to care giving for family members and we need to have models of care that are consumer driven
9:18 am
but involve the family caregiver as a key partner this health care with doctors and partners and any other caregivers give more respite care as a care giver if i don't have a break now and then i can't keep going respite is really important there are programs like the national family caregiver program that need a lot more support. >> there is more information about all this at your website. www.aarp.org/care giving. >> very good we will link it to our website myfoxdc.com to get you over there, it is a growing problem, a big problem and hopefully we can get some relief. >> all right. >> amy thanks. sarah back to you. >> all right tony thank you. >> here is an interesting story kids may actually be safer when driving with grandma and grandpa a new study found injury risk for children is 50% lower when riding with grand parents compared to parents they are more nervous about
